In this chapter, we covered the topic of AppStacks in more detail.

We started off by describing the provisioning process before moving on to creating an AppStack.

Once it was created, we went on to look at assignment and how to deliver AppStacks to some of our end users. We did this by assigning AppStacks to our example Active Directory groups, which reflected different departments within our organization.

Finally, we looked at how to perform some of the ongoing management of AppStacks, such as updates and other general admin tasks.

In the next chapter, we will take a deeper look into Writable Volumes.
